Food thumbs-up, and waitstaff service was very good and attentive. Great drinks.
Host/frontdesk staff seemed preoccupied with videos on her phone and blasé in her attitude/response toward patrons, both with and without reservations (we had a reservation).
Covid-19 protocols: the good—Staff was well-masked incl. full visors; tables/chairs properly cleaned. Distance between tables good. Problematic—lack of a proper physical boundary between seated patrons and the pedestrian public right-of-way. Pedestrian traffic within 1-ft of your table, many without masks, and smoking. Crowded by those waiting for valet, again, smoking, no masks. The response by restaurant staff to address and minimize this concern was mixed. Would rethink sitting outside and/or consider other restaurants with better outdoor dining available.

It has remained one of my favorites places in Pasadena, whether for a quick drink with colleagues or a special night out. Very attentive staff with equally satisfying meal choices.

Mi Piace has been in business for ~ 30 years and has always had slow/innattentive service. There's no excuse for this. The food is tasty and a decent value for the price, just don't come hungry.

This was our first visit since they reopened post quarantine. We came celebrate my birthday. The tables are nicely spaced out and the staff all wear face masks with shields and gloves. They were very friendly. My husband had the Chilean sea bass which he enjoyed and I had the salmon which had a very tasty lemon butter sauce. We also ordered brussell sprouts for appetizer. it was cooked well but we preferred the flavoring of them at other places. They now charge $2 for their foccacia bread and balsalmic vinegar/olive oil. It's refillable. The bread is very fresh so it was something we enjoyed and took the leftovers home.

Haven't been there for a couple of years and the quality of the food and ambiance has definitely declined. The quality of the food was disappointing and the place looked dirty and runned down. Our server was excellent and appreciated her taking care of me and my elderly family.

It was our first dine-in restaurant experience since the COVID-19 shelter in place order. Food and service was fine. Tables were spaced appropriately for social distancing. All the staff wore personal protective equipment including face masks and servers also wore face shields. We did noticed that the manager/owner did not wore any PPE and was walking around talking to staff and customers. That was troubling to see and why I would not recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

!It was fun being able to sit outside, enjoy a wonderful Italian lunch, and couple that with great (Non-Covid) conversation with my 8 year daughter. One word / Priceless! The service was excellent, the food was delicious and being able to have a little slice of normal was a blessing! And to make a great lunch even better, The Owner and/or Manager offered my daughter a complimentary dessert! That was special and she really enjoyed it! (And no she didn’t share it with Dad)! So if you are looking for an escape, a great meal to share with a special someone, this is your place to go!

Took my little sister for her graduation dinner and it was superb. The food was incredible, the service was above and beyond, and the environment was amazing. This place never fails to amaze me. The owner of the restaurant came to our table to congratulate my sister and even gave her a cheesecake on the house. As the other guests finished their meal and left, they’d walk over to our table to say “Congrats” to my sister. A great staff, great food, great clients, and overall amazing place. I can’t say enough great things about this place.

This was our first time at Mi Piace. It was their second day open after the pandemic.

We sat outside. Hannah was our server. She was very helpful and kind.

The food was delicious, fresh, and beautifully prepared.

I had the roasted chicken, my husband had the pasta.

Thank you Mi Piace!

Always liked the food. Still good. Appetizers: Calamari, bruschetta--excellent. Chopped salad superb. Pasta was very tasty. I forgot about the service. Not the assistants --they were on top of it. The waiters and the maitre d/host. I wrote a note that is was birthday dinner, we wanted a corner table--only Opentable place that ignored the note! But I remembered that it happened before here. Waiter confused the wine and did not remember about the allergies we discussed--weird. But I remembered how arrogant the leadership is. Still wonderful food, if you can navigate the egos and the lack of attention to details. I have to remember not to go back.

My experience at Mi Piace is perplexing. First, the food was fantastic. Both of our dishes were delicious with a great presentation. The food met our expectations. However, there were some small details that could have made my review a lot better. First, when we were seated, they forgot to give us menus. My wife and chatted for a while and we didnt notice that we didnt have menus. Which leads to my next point, no waiter check on us for a food order. We had to wave someone down to give us a menu. When we ordered, we ordered some of their delicious bread, but they forgot to bring it to us. Our salad and main dishes arrived and we had no bread. I dont know why the service was inconsistent, they seemed to be very crowded that evening, but these are small details that could have improved the experience as a whole. I guess I would recommend the place, but go on a night that is not crowded.

I realize it was a Saturday night and it was busy they need to figure out how to give better service when it’s really busy. I asked for a few things and did not get them in any reasonable amount of time or they were not brought. I gave a 15% tip. I usually give 20%. Our waitress was really sweet and friendly. Food is amazing!
